The return of Tricky Dick..
After the somewhat fumbling handling of the first debate, Richard Nixon comes back and levels out with JFK, talking quite comfortably and understandibly about some issues such as civil rights, the poor and of course, communism. Each side attacks each other with vigor and both defend themselves quite well. Nixon does stumble a bit at the end though when trying to score some kind of knock out victory only to have Kennedy overpower him. Quite good!
